Las relaciones entre la UE y sus países vecinos meridionales constituyen una de nuestras prioridades. Nuestra labor cubre una amplia variedad de ámbitos, como la participación de la sociedad civil en el diálogo político y social, la transición democrática, el empleo juvenil, el desarrollo sostenible, la movilidad y la inmigración, el comercio, la energía renovable y el desarrollo empresarial.

El CESE ha trabajado en estas cuestiones desde 1995. Como consecuencia de los cambios en la región en 2010, hemos ajustado adecuadamente nuestros objetivos, encaminados hacia:

  • el apoyo a las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en los países inmersos en una transición, que se dirige, en particular, a las organizaciones sindicales y patronales, así como a las asociaciones de mujeres, juveniles y de agricultores;
  • el mantenimiento de relaciones bilaterales con los consejos económicos y sociales nacionales en la región y trabajar para crear las condiciones necesarias para la inclusión de la sociedad civil en el diálogo político de los países asociados vecinos meridionales;
  • la elaboración de dictámenes e informes conjuntos sobre los retos políticos fundamentales a los que se enfrenta la región;
  • la celebración de reuniones periódicas con las instituciones europeas y otras organizaciones internacionales para debatir sobre las políticas que afectan a la sociedad civil en la región;
  • la organización de una cumbre anual para los consejos económicos y sociales y otras instituciones similares, en la que se presentan recomendaciones políticas fundamentales sobre los retos más importantes a los que se enfrenta la región ante los responsables políticos de los Gobiernos nacionales y de la UE.
